Publisher's Summary

Everyone knows how all those fairy tales go. The princess gets beautiful, nabs her prince, falls instantly in love, lives happily ever after and leaves her evil stepsisters in the dust. But what happens when you're the ugly stepsister and your obnoxiously perfect - read pretty, smart, and, worst of all, sickeningly nice - stepsister is dating the charming, tall, devastatingly handsome guy you've had a thing for since you were nine years old? 

Quirky, artistic and snarky Mattie Lowe does not lead a charmed life. Her mother is constantly belittling her on Skype. Mercedes, the school mean girl, has made it her personal mission to torment Mattie. But worst of all? Her stepsister Ella is the most beautiful, popular girl in school and is dating Mattie's secret longtime crush, Jake Kingston. 

Tired of being left out and done with waiting for her own stupid fairy godmother to show up, Mattie decides to change her life. She'll start by running for senior class president against wildly popular Jake. Ella can keep her Prince Annoying. Mattie's going to rule the school. And no one, not even a cute and suddenly flirty Jake, is going to stop her.

Nothing special but a story of high school love

Probably targeted to late teen readers. A good chronicle of all the usual problems encountered in private prep high school. Unless one wants to reminisce about those days, I am not sure this book has wide appeal. I gave it a four star for target audience but wouldn’t rank it that high for those outside of target audience.

wonderful. fun and exciting.

yes I loved it great story well written.
narrator was terrific and easy to understand
little sister told me it was a great book. not a personal fairytale lover but sisters are sure they can reform me. more great audio books like this and I'll definitely will be. one of the best modern twists off of a traditional fairy tale I found.
